•About us • Consults & Treatments • Reviews • Our Clinic
John has twenty years of osteopathic experience, and tutored in the clinic of the British College of Osteopathic Medicine for five years. Originally from East London, after travels abroad and time elsewhere in London, he settled in Bethnal Green to live and work in 2001, and has seen and enjoyed the enormous changes to Tower Hamlets and bordering Hackney.
He enjoys treating all ages from infants to older people, for conditions as wide ranging as back and neck pain, sciatic, frozen shoulder, sports injuries, and issues relating to anxiety and tension. He is as comfortable using direct mechanical osteopathic manipulations as he is with the gentle and subtle cranial osteopathic techniques, whether with adults or young babies. John's BUPA, AVIVA, Pru, HSA, and other recognition may cover the cost of your treatment.
Arturo is an experienced osteopath helping adults with a variety of issues, and has a particular interest in sporting injuries and the management of pain during and after pregnancy. He benefitted from four years of non-osteopathic work, shadowing and assisting physiotherapists and midwifes, assisting women through their pregnancies as part of the women health team at University College Hospital London (UCLH).
We both integrate Medical (Western) Acupuncture techniques into treatments where appropriate, and engage patients in exercise to reduce pain and to improve quality of life.
Consultations & Treatments
The initial consultation is an hour in length and your follow-up treatments 45 minutes. This is longer than many clinics provide, and allows for a thorough assessment and treatment at every stage, and time enough to engage you in a tailored programme of advice and exercise.
We aim to help you quickly resolve your issues, and to empower you to prevent their return.
The FAQ page will answer many of your questions, and gives the policy on late cancellations etc. Concession fees are available, and further reductions can be discussed on the day.
We look forward to meeting you.
" I have been going to the Plane Tree for Osteopathy with John Mallinder for nearly two years. I have a chronic illness with side effects from the illness and the medication. John is very professional and obviously a very experienced osteopath and always responds with creativity and kindness..... "
"John really took the time to listen and understand the problems concerning my shoulder and lower back which I found highly professional but also reassuring having never been to an osteopath before. Over a short period of time and a some very focussed and excellent treatments later I was pain free.... " More reviews..
